Former Ravens and Bears linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo is in the news again, and once again it’s for revealing pertinent lockerrrom information.
During a podcast for Fox Sports, Ayanbadejo Ayanbadejo says teammates smoked marijuana prior to playing in one of his two Super Bowls.
Ayanbadejo played for the Bears in Super Bowl XLI after the 2006 season and the Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII last season, but he would not reveal which year the incident took place.
“I’m not going to say which Super Bowl it was, but I just remember getting off the elevator one night — it was early on in the [Super Bowl] week, just to start the week off — and all of the sudden I just got hit over the head with fumes of marijuana on the entire floor of the hotel that the team was staying on. … I could just imagine there were a few young guys just toking it up in more than one room.”
Ayanbadejo says he was surprised that someone would do such a thing during the biggest week of the season.
was like, ‘Man, this is the week of the Super Bowl and you’re just going in?'” Ayanbadejo said. “So then I was looking around, and I’m like ‘OK, where is the security?’ I looked and for some reason we didn’t have regular police. Coach was smart enough to have rent-a-cops on our floor instead of regular police like we usually do.”
